For all researchers interested in policy For all researchers interested in policy

Policy@uea is a grouping, based within the Political, Social and International Studies subject area, that brings together researchers with an interest in public policy, public administration and/or public management from across the University, with an occasional guest speaker.

It provides a forum for interested scholars:

  • To exchange new research ideas or research in progress
  • To report findings from completed projects
  • To discuss experience of research, including impact
  • To explore potential for cross-School or cross-Faculty collaboration
  • To discuss possible research or grant bids
  • To facilitate co-ordination of responses to calls for funding or evidence

Meetings are held at least twice a semester, depending on interest, and texts and other materials are available on a dedicated 'policy@uea' Blackboard site (registration required).

Membership is open to any members of the University with interests in the above fields.  Please send an email to if you would like to be added to the mailing list and access to the policy@uea Blackboard site.

Please direct any queries to Hussein Kassim, PSI, Alan Finlayson, PSI , or Sara Connolly, NBS.
